On Saturday 22 October, Caldecote Local History Group put up a stand showing maps and farming scenes from the Caldecote area. We also had wartime pictures too. This caught the eye of many passers by and generated memories and conversations. We had a table display which was conveniently next door to that of our publisher Chris Thomas of Milton Contact Limited, who kindly took the picture seen here of the group.
We joined forces and together converted what would have been a quiet alcove, that visitors rushed past, into a friendly conversation area that welcomed them in.
Several villagers both past and present came up to have a chat to the three members there; Sue Day, Nicky Wallace and David Phillips. They learnt some interesting things and hope to meet up with some of the villagers so that they can take some notes which will fill in gaps in our knowledge. For example we have old photos of villagers, but do not know their names.
